I am a wife, a mother, an activist and a volunteer. I want my gorgeous and talented daughter to grow up in a world where we are judged by the quality of our character alone. Photography has always been a passion and hobby. Check out my daughter (who introduced me to JPG) Molly, another talented JPG contributor, here.
